    you know, you could have asked for donations. Can we keep ours for next year for a $20 spot?

    Well . . . since you've brought it up. Everyone is free to donate to the Tour of Lake Ellyn Foundation (a registered 501(c)3 ) in order to help defray the costs associated with the event. Net proceeds go to the GE Food Pantry.

    So, the event is a win-win for everyone.

    Click the "DONATE" button to send some dough via PayPal. Receipts will be generated post race day.

    They got Jim and Steph's, too. $12-14 gone. Just like that! I feel victimized.

    BTW, I always confuse your house with the one to the west. You = porch, them = none, right?[/QUOT

    Thanks Clam...it was put on our neighbor's lawn I snuck over before they were up and moved it to ours. We now have an extra one if you need one (no stand though). The porch was where Amy Kelly performed back in the day of the BBQ on Willis St. You have fond memories of getting a trophy that year.

    From this week's police report..."Three open house signs reportedly were stolen from three different properties between 8 a.m. and 1 p.m. June 10, according to the victim, Keller Williams, located at 45 S. Park Blvd."

    Weird.

    Even though steel prices have been climbing, scrap prices have been dropping. Since they just took the metal stands (in some TOLE signs thefts), maybe the scavengers are getting desperate.

    Or maybe the parents have hid the Tide pods on the teens and they're bored

    Broad daylight on a Sunday. I don't think this is about scrap metal, it sounds like we have an old fashioned realtor war brewin'.

    I feel slightly embarrassed that I don't have, nor ever had a TOLE yard sign. Luckily, the non-sign hasn't been stolen, yet.

    Clam has apparently delivered. It does look good in my yard. Maybe I should put a webcam on it or lock it up though.
